Fall decor for mantles can be difficult and I am so excited to share this one with all of you. This year with my mantle I wanted a very clean and classic look with all the colors of fall. I had a hard time finding exactly what I wanted so I knew that I needed to DIY a few things to get the look I was going for. I found some fall leaves and branches but I could not find a vase that I liked to go with the branches. Here is where the DIY comes in, I found a few plain glass vases and using some Krylon® Spray Paint to totally transform them.


How to Decorate for Fall

Step-by-Step Instructions

  1. Spray Paint the vases.

    Start by using the Krylon spray paint and spray the top half of the vase in orange. Always be sure to read the product label for proper application and safety instructions!

  2. Tape the vase.

    Add tape to the top of the vase and spray paint the bottom half with the textured color.

  3. Add the flowers!

    Wait about 15 minutes before taking the tape off. Place Fall colored flowers in them and start setting up the mantel!

Easy Decor Idea for Fall

  • I started by using the Krylon® Shimmer Metallic Candy Corn  spray paint and sprayed the top half of the vase. Always be sure to read product label for proper application and safety instructions.
  • This Shimmer Metallic spray has the perfect amount of shimmer to it. It adds a bit more movement and dimension then just plain orange spray paint.
  • After the top of the vase was dry I taped off the top half of the vase and wanted to leave just the top 1/3 of the vase orange.
  • Allow it to dry for about 15 minutes before taking off the tape. The vases are now transformed into something with way more character.
  • These colors are perfect with the fall branches that I had.
  • I had another vase that I wanted to be more neutral so I used Krylon® Chalky Finish in Colonial Ivory to spray the two toned vase. The Chalky Finish spray has a great matte finish and it dries quickly.
  • To finish off my mantle I made these paper flowers and I cut out the “hello fall” in gold vinyl.

Happy Fall!

This Fall decor for mantles is easy for anybody to do! For a bit more layering I added in some old books and some pinecones. I am so in love with these vases. They have such a high end look and great texture. The best part about Krylon®Spray Paint is that as the seasons change or as my mantle changes for a different occasion it can easily be updated by spraying the top of the vases a different color. One of the things that I love most about spray paint is that it transforms things into custom pieces at affordable prices and you have endless options.

We are excited to be working with  Krylon® for this project.  Opinions are my own and additional products used in the project were selected by us.
